Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Rachel Parker

I am so excited to become part of the inaugural buccaneer family! I was born and raised in North Carolina and have been living in Garner for over a decade. I have a degree in psychology from NC State University and have been working in the field of early intervention in Wake County for over 11 years. I am married to my husband, Ashley, and we have two sons, Jackson (8) and Wilson (6). We own a cuddly 12-year-old Labrador, Charley.

When I am not working, you can find me spending time with my family outdoors, traveling to the beach, and watching or attending a variety of sporting events (Go Wolfpack!).

My goal for each student is for them to grow beyond grade-level expectations. In the classroom, I hope to provide a space for each child to feel safe, to learn in their own unique style, to have confidence to seek answers to their questions, and to feel excitement about coming to school. I believe that good communication with parents is essential for ensuring positive outcomes for students. A strong elementary education creates the foundation for success in future academics and is one of the greatest gifts we can give to children.
